Sherwood will not be new Palace boss

Former Tottenham head coach Tim Sherwood has distanced himself from the vacant manager’s position at Crystal Palace, according to Sky Sports.

Sherwood had been strongly linked in recent days with the Palace hotseat, but has apparently ruled himself out of contention for the post claiming that it was ‘not the right fit’ for him at the present time.


Jim White of Sky Sports reported that he had spoken to Sherwood, currently away in Spain, and that Sherwood had told him that while he had given the role serious thought he had decided that he no longer wished to be considered for the job.


“His representative has contacted Palace co-chairman Steve Parish to tell him just that, so Parish now knows that Sherwood has dropped out of the race,” said White.


“Sherwood told me: ‘I wish them well with the hunt for a new manager, but it is not the right fit for me at this time. Crystal Palace is a great club with a great tradition, but they’re in a difficult situation which was unforeseen.’ Sherwood thanked Parish for granting him an interview last weekend, and he felt the interview went very well, but he no longer wishes to be considered for the job.”


This is the second Premier League job that Sherwood has rejected this summer, after he recently confirmed that he had turned down the chance to take over as head coach of West Bromwich Albion.


He told media that despite several meetings with the Baggies’ hierarchy, they could not reach an agreement and again he decided that the role was not right for him.


Sherwood’s decision leaves Palace still managerless for their London derby with West Ham this weekend. The Eagles’ other top target Malky Mackay was also ruled out after it became known that he was under investigation by the Football Association in connection with allegations that he sent homophobic and sexist text messages during his time as Cardiff City boss.


Neil Lennon, Steve Clarke and Martin Jol are the latest names to be linked with the position created by Tony Pulis’ shock departure on the eve of the Premier League season.
